Offshore (Energy) is one of the particular areas of expertise of Margetson Lawyers. Our clients consist of larger and smaller marine contractors, ship owners and other service providers. We occasionally act for operators.

We negotiate, advise on and draft all types of contracts in the offshore industry e.g.:

EPCI, EPC, T&I contracts, ROV contracts Charterparties, Ship sale and purchase agreements, Pre-bid agreements, Joint Venture / shareholder agreements, NDA’s, / CFA’s PCG’s, Performance Bonds Etc.

A great deal of our work consists of supporting clients with tenders, whereby we inter alia draft tables of contractual qualifications and assist in contract negotiations. We work with the LOGIC, FIDIC and BIMCO suites of contracts on a regular basis, as well as with in-house contracts of various oil companies and large contractors.

We also litigate and arbitrate disputes under and in connection with such contracts. We have a great deal of experience handling large international disputes.
